Thrifting Adventures – The First Thrift of the Year

My first thrifting adventures of 2015 overturned a number of small ‘treasures’.   It was also a fine chance to take my little sister, Sue, along to a garage sale.  We went to four garage sales with a breakfast stop at the charming cafe Bungalow for breakfast in between.

My booty was a varied lot but sadly no clothes or accessories.

There were two old books of party games, some of them wildly inappropriate for the modern world.  I picked up three seersucker tablecloths, one in watermelon colours that make me instantly think of Summer.   I picked up two pots for little pot plants, one with a very nice art-deco flower decoration.  For the kitchen I bought a set of four blue willow bowls and a small serving plate to match as well as three antique plates.  The three CD set of jazz music was only $1 while the LPs vinyls of Gilbert and Sullivan musicals were 50c each.  I also bought two Hollywood DVDs – East of Eden with James Dean and a Bridgette Bardot film.

My haul came to just over $25 so I was pretty pleased with my first thrifting adventure of the year.
